There has been some obvious troll activity lately. Don't stoop to their level please. If you see a post that you are concerned about, please PM me or another member of the Posse of REPORT the post. (There is a little exclamation point right above the post where the EDIT and QUOTE buttons are. Simply click it to report the post.) We will take care of it. Again, I would ask the membership here to not stoop to the level of anyone trolling. It doesn't reflect well on you when you participate in their game. Just ignore it and report it please. Thanks!

Trolls are a good sign of a growing forum and a hallmark of the internet in general. :grinningjester:

As an FYI for membership, I wanted to let you know a small step we implemented to prevent trolls and spammers. All new users must now be approved by me personally before they can join. It only takes me a few seconds to do this but it allows me to check IP addresses, usernames, and email addresses and simply not approve the obvious spammers and trolls. So far it has been working well.

That sounds like a really good idea. :D Bye Bye lame posters.

Do you guys need help with approving people? How often do you go through the list of sign ups?

I'm good. Thanks for the offer though.
It literally takes like 15 seconds from my computer. Maybe 60 seconds from my phone. We get 0-5 new members a day so it just isn't a big deal.
